Weigh in on Clement Avenue Redo Now
The City of Alameda held a public workshop Monday to discuss a project that will address safety and speeding concerns, while improving walking, bicycling and driving on Clement Avenue between Grand Street and Broadway. Residents can still give their opinions on the project via an online survey until Sunday, June 16.
The improvement concept takes into account the new Alameda Marina mixed-use development, the Cross Alameda Trail with completion at Jean Sweeney Park and construction currently west of Sweeney Park to Alameda Point. Clement is part of the Cross Alameda Trail.
Safety improvements include:
- Remove the railroad tracks and ties buried under the street
- Provide a two-way bikeway on the estuary side of the street that would be separated from motorists by on-street parking or other barriers
- Extend red-painted curbs at intersections and driveways to improve visibility
- Install stop signs on Clement at Schiller and Stanford streets
- Install high-visibility crosswalks and curb bulb-outs
- Improve sidewalks
- Plant street trees
- Provide accessible parking spaces, truck access and loading zones.
The public has additional chances to weigh in besides the online survey. A Transportation Commission meeting set for Wednesday, July 24, will also discuss the Clement improvements. A City Council meeting in September may feature final approval of the proposed changes.
